Something Beautiful

Enjoy the words to a song written by Bill Gaither, 
Something Beautiful, as you scroll through these fall images.

If there ever were dreams
That were lofty and noble

They were my dreams at the start

And hope for life's best were the hopes
That I harbor down deep in my heart
But my dreams turned to ashes

And my castles all crumbled, my fortune turned to loss
So I wrapped it all in the rags of life
And laid it at the cross.

Something beautiful, something good
All my confusion He understood

All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife
But he made something beautiful of my life

Note the Red-Tailed Hawk sitting in the tree.

I am so thankful that God took my life and made it into one that He could use.

These are GORGEOUS! My favorites are the first and last. The eagle shot is awesome. Beautiful big old tree and a touch of yellow on the side.

I was saved in October of 1979, and I always marveled at the way Bill Gaither could write songs that gave expression to the thoughts of my heart. He has a gift. Beautiful images to accompany these words.
